Join FRB as we welcome Jay F. Kelly, Associate Professor of Biology and Environmental Science at Raritan Valley Community College, for a fascinating lecture about deer and invasive plant management. Dr. Kelly will explain his work studying and monitoring the effects of deer overpopulation and browsing on forest health and NJ local wildlife populations, including breeding bird populations. He will also discuss invasive plant species and their impact on forest health.

This event will be especially important to attend if you'd like context for Flat Rock Brook's decision to put up permanent deer fencing and how it will likely impact our forest in the coming years.
